I'm in the process of installing MT ET Streets, 30x11.5x15 onto 8.5 Weld Draglites with a 5.5" backspace.

Did the fitment thing, and looks like I'll need a 1/2" spacer on the pass side due to the GM rearend 1/2" offset to the drivers side (in other words, without the spacer I'm up against the frame on the pass side).

Hopefully, with the spacer I'll be able to clear it (so it looks)......Now, I better check on the tire climb clearance, lol!!!
